InCoWriMo and Postcards

International Correspondence Writing Month

Last year I got into sending mail via postcards and letters. I ran a postcard club where I mailed postcards to people who signed up. In February I participated in International Correspondence Month (InCoWriMo). In April I did another month long event called Write On. Through the rest of the year I did my bestRead more

Goals for 2018

Last Friday I talked about how I did with my goals for 2017. I was pretty pleased with the progress I made. This week, let’s look at the goals I’m setting for 2018. Health We started here last year, so let’s do that again this year. I mentioned last week that I need to findRead more

Thinking Forward and Looking Back

When I sat down and wrote out my goals for 2017, I had no idea what the year would bring me. I had an idea, but in reality I knew all of it was probably going to change. I always feel like I have to keep things constantly in the air and to be readyRead more

NaNoWriMo 2017

NaNoWriMo 2018 Reflection

It was a crazy November this year.  This NaNoWriMo was probably my most productive ever.  Yes, I did hit the 50,000 word goal, but that’s not really a challenge for me.  Today I’m going to reflect on the goals I set for myself in November, how they evolved, and what comes next. I had threeRead more

NaNoWriMo: When All Your Plans Change

I think most people who have heard me talk or read this blog long enough to get to know me know I’m very goal oriented.  A friend, who has since passed away, often complained that I was so goal oriented that I rarely stopped to enjoy my success before I was on to the nextRead more

Setting My Goals for 2017

Setting My Goals for 2017

There is a lot that is going to happen in 2017.  At the center of all of it is the publication of Modern Persuasion.  I have already been neck deep in the process of getting ready for the publication, but everything is going to change once it’s published.  Because of bullet journaling, I have beenRead more

January 2017 Adventure: 30 Days of Wikipedia

January’s Adventure: 30 Days of Wikipedia

In a few days it will be January.  I am, again, changing things up on the blog.  Each month there will be a different adventure.  It could be NaNoWriMo, getting published, knitting, or Wikipedia.  The Monday posts will all be focused on that adventure.  I am planning each month’s adventure a head of time. InRead more

2016 Achievements

2016 Achievements

It was a crazy year.  I like to focus on the good things here.. or at least the things I can learn from.  I like to think about what I actually achieved during a calendar year.  I am really good with planning and visioning what is going to happen, but I never really stop andRead more

NaNoWriMo and Writing: Writing Every Day

I think the one advice almost every author has given is that you need to write every day.  The idea, from the way I understand it, is that by writing every day we make progress and move forward.  It is making writing a habit and routine rather than another obligation we need to find timeRead more

Reassessing Life Goals: Health

There is one life goal on my list that is being re-evaluated, but not to decide if it has to be removed, but to see if it needs to be evolved: health.  Of all my life goals, this one is not very specific in language, but in the details it is.  The life goal isRead more
